Famous quotes containing the word sang:

    Grandfather sang it under the gallows:
    “Hear, gentlemen, ladies, and all mankind:
    Money is good and a girl might be better,
    But good strong blows are delights to the mind.”
    There, standing on the cart,
    He sang it from his heart.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I cannot say what loves have come and gone;
    I only know that summer sang in me
    A little while, that in me sings no more.
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)

    “Money is good and a girl might be better,
    No matter what happens and who takes the fall,
    But a good strong cause”Mthe rope gave a jerk there,
    No more sang he, for his throat was too small;
    But he kicked before he died,
    He did it out of pride.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
